The world of Villainous.
Isolated in the woods of Redfield Forest, Straffen asylum stands deep amongst the foliage. It was established in the late 1800's and has been constantly renovated up until present day; retaining it an intimidating gothic look with the more clinically modern. The reputation it has built is outstanding, but not without controversy. It's experimentation regarding psychotherapy has been under scrutiny for years; both praised and rejected by various circles.
Brought to its uplifting and sunny feet in the 1970's, Sun-Dale mall with its relaxing music, varied shopping for all the family and bright decor has embraced many customers. Tragedy struck though, as a terrorist attack by the infamous Victor Arkin destroyed most of its foundation. It remains closed today, and will be scheduled for demolition.

Sassy and outgoing, Jessica is a yin to Bryson's yang. Very cultured and creative, Jessica has written 2 crime novels, which have been praised for their realism. When a younger student Jessica went into cop bars for research material, she got more than expected when she left with a rookie Bryson's number. From that moment up until the present day, they have remained together.
Miles is a slow learner, but good willed and dedicated. While not the sharpest, or the most confident man, spending time under Bryson's wing has upped his game. As he undergoes training to become a detective he has learned a lot, but certain shades of green still show through in his work.
Of both American and Japanese heritage, Mia stands out in the police force. Her flirtatious and bubbly persona can light up the room, and her smarts and demeanour under pressure are envied.
David is a well liked and eager young officer, he hopes to become a detective and is always on hand to help out Detectives Bryson and Buchanan.
